    Lyrics

    [Verse 1]
    By the time you get this letter
    I might be doin better
    its kinda hard trying to survive
    in all this crazy weather

    Everybody wants my number
    everybody's callin my name
    but in the midst of all of this
    I can still hear you say

    Son, walk upright
    and straighten yo tie
    you don't want one of those good jobs to pass you by
    don't act no fool, i'm watching you
    and now that you're gone
    it still feels like you do,I Wish

    [Chorus]
    I wish u were here
    to see the things i've done
    I wish u were here
    you'd be so proud of your son
    I wish u were here
    to celebrate with me
    I wish u were here

    [Verse 2]
    now all of these people ask me
    "Is it lonely at the top?:"
    or do I find comfort
    in all the things I got

    Well these cars keep me movin
    these planes keep me high
    a million dollar home
    but i'm barely gettin by
    cause...

    I miss our talks,
    one thing u used to say (used to say)
    when things got hard (Hard on me)
    get down on your knees and pray

    And then those walks (then those walks)
    its just the simple thangs
    we still do all of this
    bu only in my dreams, i wish

    [Chorus]
    I wish u were here
    to see the things i've done
    I wish u were here
    you'd be so proud of your son (you would be so proud of yo son)
    I wish u were here (thats all i kno to say, thats all i kno to pray)
    to celebrate with me
    I wish u were here

    But sometimes i wonder why
    why cant u still be here wit me?,
    wish God would've waited a couple more years for u to see
    i'm tryna stay strong
    barely holdin on
    I kno i'll see u again,
    but for right now, rest in peace

    And when i get to heaven
    first thing they'll say to me
    tell me have u seen Estelle Marie Talley
    find out where u are,
    run into your arms
    wrap yo wings around me
    and whisper in my ear, well done

    [Chorus]
    I wish u were here
    to see the things i've done
    I wish u were here
    you'd be so proud of your son
    I wish u were here
    to celebrate with me
    I wish u were here
